The main reason for aluminum is NOT to save weight, it is because it is more rigid for better handling. Same as with MX bike, weight is save by refinement after refinement for the most part.

As for it weighing more, reverse alone prolly adds 10-15lbs.

The frame weighs 26lbs. A C'Dale aluminum frame is in the 40's and yet the quad ready to ride is only about 25lbs heavier in stock form. The KFX's frame appears to be built well but there are places I will be constantly checking for weakness as it's strength could've been upped imo.
